WA Poets Publishing

WA Poets Publishing (WAPP) was formed in 2020 and is the formalised extension of the publishing that was originally conducted under WA Poets Inc. It has arisen partly from the scale back of publishing opportunities for poets in Western Australia and operates as a sub group of WA Poets Inc. WAPP publishes emerging to eminent Western Australian poets in high quality, short run publications whilst the anthologies, Creatrix, Poetry d’Amour, and Brushstrokes also include national and international contributing poets. Currently, WAPP relies on volunteers for its production including the editorial panel comprising Lucy Dougan, Jean Kent, Barbara Temperton and Dennis Haskell AO who freely donate their considerable experience and time to ensure that WAPP publications are of the highest standard.

WA Poets Inc is a Not-for-Profit organisation and profits from the sale of merchandise are used to help cover the cost of supporting, developing and promoting WA poets and poetry.
